The town's annual Veterans Day ceremony will take place on the traditional date and time -- Monday at 11 a.m. -- in the Town Hall auditorium.

"Veterans Day is a time to recognize and thank the men and women of our armed forces," said First Selectman Gordon Joseloff. "I invite all residents to join me in honoring our veterans."

Organizations participating in the ceremonies will be the Westport Community Band, the Westport Police Department Honor Guard, members of the Joseph J. Clinton Post 399 Veterans of Foreign Wars, representatives of the Ladies Auxiliary Post 399, and members of the August Mathias Post 63 American Legion.

Town Hall offices will be closed in observance of Veterans Day.
